Mattar Lab

Department of Cognitive Science, UC San Diego

Our lab studies the neuroscience of memory and decision making. We conduct experiments and design computational models using the framework of Reinforcement Learning with the goal of understanding how the brain simulates the future to guide decisions. We hope our work will help us understand healthy and pathological cognition and inform the development of new brain-inspired Artificial Intelligence algorithms.

We are recruiting!

Announcement: In January 2023, our lab will move to New York University (NYU). The lab then will temporarily maintain a presence at UC San Diego while some lab members continue their graduate studies.
